The art of Brian Grimm invites viewers to become immersed in the animal world. His faithful portrayal of wildlife is supported by his years in the field. Strong brushwork, confident style, and attentive editing reflect respect for the animal while also resting on the foundations of design principles.
Grimm earned a commercial art degree at Austin Community College and learned from a litany of professors at the forefront of the Austin arts scene. After college, he worked as a graphic designer in Austin. After his first foray into fine art at outdoor festivals,Grimm found an audience and gallery representation at his first show. National representation and museum invitations soon followed. His work has traversed the spectrum of Western, plein air, and impressionist art, continuing to grow while focusing solely on wildlife art for twenty-five years.
In 2020 Grimm was selected as a Centennial Artist for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Centennial Celebration, and he has also been recognized in
the Arts in the Parks Top 100, the Southwest Art Magazine Top 100 in Artistic Excellence, and with the Jim Ward Memorial Award by the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum.
His paintings have been featured in publications such as Art of the West, Southwest Art, WesternArt and Architecture, and Western Art Collector.
